Team TierPoint recently guest lectured at Quincy College in Boston, as part of the institution’s Computer Systems Security course. Students enrolled in the course are introduced to the concepts of computer and network security with applications in the Windows environment. Other guest lecturers have included representatives from Dell, IBM, and VMware.

The Team TierPoint lecture featured Chief Security Officer Paul Mazzucco discussing the dark web, the psyche of hackers, and the business world students will face when they become security professionals.  He was joined by Director of Technical Security Services Shawn Connelly, who reviewed network security best practices and recounted on-the-job anecdotes from his Geek Squad days.
